About the Show
"Following an Emmy Award-winning ninth season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” Mama Ru is back with season three of “RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars,” featuring some of the most sickening queens to ever take the “Drag Race” runway. RuPaul revealed the nine returning queens during an hour-long televised pre-season episode, which also included a special interview with the iconic, Chaka Khan. Michelle Visage, Carson Kressley and Ross Mathews will return to the judging panel alongside RuPaul for a season tucked to the edges with more tea, more shade, and more twist-filled challenges than ever before. The highly anticipated new season will kick off this winter on VH1."
